1. Grocery Delivery

Whether you don’t have time to shop for groceries or you simply don’t enjoy it, you can order groceries online on platforms like AmazonFresh and Walmart Grocery and get it delivered to your doorstep. 

Moreover, if you want to start cooking at home instead of eating out every day, a meal kit subscription is what you need. Services like Blue Apron and HelloFresh deliver packages containing the exact ingredients along with a step-by-step recipe to make your meal of choice. They offer meal plans for individuals, families, and different dietary restrictions.

2. Flower Subscription

Fresh flowers have some unexplained quality about them that makes your house look instantly brighter. But who has the time to go to the florist and pick a flower arrangement? Lucky for you, you can now get a flower subscription. BloomsyBox delivers hand-picked bouquets on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis.

3. Psychic Readings

No, you don’t have to go all the way to New Orleans to get a psychic reading. Whether you’re contemplating moving to a new city or questioning your relationship, you can easily get a psychic reading online. Psychics are available over the phone, text, or online chat, whatever you’re comfortable with.

4. Interior Designing Services

Don’t have the first clue about interior design? Interior designing serves more than just adding aesthetics. It’s also required to enhance functionality, especially if you live in a place like New York, where space is often limited. Hutch is an excellent interior designing app for renters.

9. Goat Rental for Landscaping!

Yes, you read that right, you can rend goats! You must be wondering what for? Well, Rent A Goat offers goats on rent for cost-effective and eco-friendly weed removal. Think of them as cheaper and sustainable landscapers, just much cuter.
